Former Florida Gators center Maurkice Pouncey planned to deny allegations that he accepted $100,000 from the associate of an agent between the 2009 Southeastern Conference Championship and 2010 Sugar Bowl on Tuesday but will instead release an official statement after head coach Urban Meyer completes his press conference for the 2010 SEC Media Days on Wednesday, according to ESPN’s Joe Schad.

Meyer is set to speak to the media from the Wynfrey Hotel in Hoover, AL, at 5:30 p.m. Preceding him are seniors center Mike Pouncey, safety Ahmad Black and defensive end Justin Trattou, who will hold a scheduled press conference earlier in the day.

    I guess since the NCAA is involved it is fitting that the first public remarks are from a UF official. I AM surprised that they will let Mike Pouncey be interviewed prior to Meyer speaking, but perhaps he is being instructed to refer all questions to Foley or Meyer. That will make for a very awkward interview. I have been amazed at the vitriole coming from the bama and usc (both schools) fans. They are chortling and giddy that UF could be sanctioned .

    I don’t see sanctions coming… hate to disappoint them.

    Steve Duemig reported on Tampa AM 620 today that there is at least one other player from UF that is going to be implicated, and Duemig stated that his source said that the player was a much bigger name than Pouncey. He didn’t say if he was a current or former player. Steve said his source is an agent that used to play for UF.

    • I’ll wait to hear something from a reliable source rather than an AM radio host in Tampa. Not saying it isn’t true, but a guy down where I am said the whole program was dirty today. Not likely.

    I believe it when I see it. Just remeber when this is cleared up it will be on the back page.

  5. Joey says:

    Adam are you going to SEC media fanfare?

  6. npgator says:

    Adam – Have you heard anything about Chris Martin from Cal potentially transferring to UF?

  7. No. We don’t have the $$$ to send me anywhere. Had the opportunity though.

  8. np – Yes, writing about it right now.
